I'm not exactly sure if people are interested in "review of the year" style posts but I think I will find it beneficial to look back at all I've achieved this year, especially after a super busy last couple of months with hardly any time to sit down and take stock. Plus I reckon my mum will enjoy reading it anyway ;)
Having just read back over my goals for 2019, I'm pretty chuffed to realise I achieved almost all of them! I still need to work on my organisation for the 365 or even 52 week project though!

It was of course a dream to be included in the colour edition of Dear Photographer magazine. I was thrilled when I was notified I'd had an image chosen and it was a colourful self portrait I took in Portugal :)
One of my biggest achievements, I submitted my 150 image portfolio in January and received my acceptance email in February, I was so excited I admit I got a bit teary!

I shared some photos from one of my favourite in-home lifestyle/documentary sessions on Dear Photographer's Facebook group and was asked to submit it for a blog feature.
This year I had 3 finalist images in this huge international competition voted for by the general public. With over half a million entries, I was thrilled to have three of my favourites make it this far and 2in 23 awards in total!

One of my product images was used in an editorial article about online shopping in Grazia magazine.
I was asked to speak at a brand new conference designed to elevate women in photography. In March 2020, 500 delegates will be descending on Manchester to learn, be inspired and socialise ith one another. I am honoured to have been asked to speak at such a big and wonderful event, especially since I've never spoken at an event like this before.
I was one of five finalists in the local Muddy Stilettos awards for Best Photographer in Sussex.
It all started with this one...
